Coral Reef is a special experience restaurant where the dining room has a private view of the fish tank on display at the Seas Pavillion. Every seat has views of the 8 foot high aquarium tank as the dining room is set up in three tiers. Some menu items available:

- Orange-Ginger glazed Scottish Salmon
- Children’s Menu: Seared Mahi Mahi, Grilled Chicken

Coral Reef is themed as if you are going “under the sea”. While their menu
will not appear to be extensive, they offer many specials based on what is in season. If you have taken the Living with the Land
ride, you saw a display on Fish Farming. Many of those fish find their way onto Coral Reef’s menu. You will be given an identification card to try and identify some of the fish in the tank while you pass the time. The restaurant is family friendly, although the kids menu is lacking. The view will more than keep your family entertained.
Chip’s Tips: The tables closest to the tank are not always the best. You get a better view from above and other diners are not standing next to you, looking into the tank while you eat.
Overall we give this restaurant a B+.
